The interim United boss, who is in charge of the club until the end of the season, suffered his first defeat in charge on Monday in Wolves’ 1-0 win.
Rangnick arrived at Old Trafford in late November 2021 after former United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked.
However, the 63-year-old German manager is attempting to unite the dressing room and push for a top-four challenge.
According to The Daily Mirror, cliques have emerged in the United squad and Rangnick now faces ‘many of the same problems’ Solskjaer experienced.
The newspaper reports that a source close to the squad has claimed that as many as 11 players have become ‘disillusioned with life at United’ and are prepared to leave.
It is believed that many of the United players have been left underwhelmed by Rangnick’s coaching and are ‘not impressed’ by his tactics.
Rangnick’s position at United has been undermined further by his interim status.
Jesse Lingard, Donny van de Beek, Dean Henderson and Eric Bailly are among the four United players who are reportedly exasperated by their lack of first-team opportunities under Rangnick.
Lingard, who is linked with Newcastle and West Ham, is out of contract in the summer and is expected to leave Old Trafford after contract talks with United have failed to make serious headway.
Van de Beek struggled to establish himself under Solskjaer and is facing another battle under Rangnick to secure regular first-team football.
Bailly, who has now reported for Africa Cup of Nations duty with the Ivory Coast, is also frustrated with the lack of playing time at Old Trafford this season.
Henderson is playing second fiddle to David de Gea at United and is prepared to leave United in a ‘desperate’ bid to secure more first-team minutes this season.
The 24-year-old, who has been linked with Newcastle, wants to ensure his place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
A source told The Mirror: “It’s not good. The atmosphere is really bad and it looks like there are going to be big problems ahead for United.”
Luke Shaw candidly admitted that United face a huge dressing room crisis in a bombshell interview after the Wolves match.
The Red Devils, who are seventh in the Premier League table, will face Aston Villa at Old Trafford in the third round of the FA Cup on 10th January.
